Fake officer attemps to scam money
PORTLAND, Maine - Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce issued a warning Saturday regarding at least two recent attempts to scam money from people in the Portland area.

In that incident, the victim was told that he owed $490 to avoid arrest. The victim was ordered to meet the caller at a location near the Cumberland County Courthouse.
